Shri Mahalakshmi Kavacham is chanted to beget the blessings of Goddess Mahalakshmi (to beget wealth, fortunes, and to be granted boons as well as to alleviate misfortunes, suffering, and poverty.

Mahalakshmi is the Hindu Goddess of wealth, prosperity, and fortune. She is said to bring good luck in life. Goddess Laxmi is one of the most worshiped deities in the Hindu religion, believed to help in acquiring wealth, status, greatness, and fame.

She is the wife and shakti of Vishnu. Lakshmi is considered another aspect of the same supreme goddess principle in the Shaktism tradition of Hinduism.

Lakshmi is depicted in Indian art as an elegantly dressed, prosperity-showering golden-colored woman with an owl as her vehicle, signifying the importance of economic activity in the maintenance of life, her ability to move, work and prevail in confusing darkness.

She typically stands or sits like a yogin on a lotus pedestal and holds a lotus in her hand, a symbolism for fortune, self-knowledge, and spiritual liberation. Her iconography shows her with four hands, which represent the four goals of human life considered important to the Hindu way of life: dharma, kama, Martha, and moksha
